The Shadow – James Patterson & Brian Sitts ★★★★

Blurb; Even time cannot stop the Shadow. 
Only two people know Lamont Cranston’s secret identity as the Shadow, a vigilante of justice: his greatest love, Margo Lane — and his fiercest enemy, Shiwan Khan. Then Khan ambushes the couple, who have the slimmest chance of survival … in the uncertain future.

A century and a half later, Lamont awakens in a world both unknown and disturbingly familiar. The first person he meets is Maddy Gomes, a teenager with her own mysterious secrets, including a more than passing familiarity with the legend of the Shadow.

Most disturbing, Khan’s power continues to be felt over the city and its people. No one in this new world understands the dangers of stopping him better than Lamont Cranston. He also knows he’s the only one who stands a chance. The Shadow must prove that he’s not only a super crime-fighter, but an icon.

My Review; My favourite author. This one was a totally different read for me by James Patterson. Wierd but very good. A huge explosive battle at the end. Historical. Magical. Invisibility. Turning into a cat. Bringing the dead back to life. All within this one story. Meet the Shadow. Friend to some. Enemy to others. He’s trying to save many.

Again a fast paced, action packed story with short chapters. Always expect the unexpected. Brilliant read. Unique. Highly recommend. A well deserved four stars. There’s a new hero in town… The shadow.
